JUVENCUS Caius Vettius Aquilinus
1792. Full page engraving showing facsimile fragments of two Vatican mss.; title in red and black. 4to. XVI, 519pp. Contemporary vellum over paste-boards, spine lettered in gilt. Rome, apud Antonium Fulgonium, 1792. The only edition of this critical text of Juvencus. Faustino Arevalo (1747-1824) was a Spanish Jesuit patristic scholar and hymnologist of great renown whose lasting achievement was his definitive edition of the works of St. Isidore, reprinted in Migne. On the expulsion of the Jesuits from Spain in 1767 he travelled to Italy, where he enjoyed the patronage of Cardinal Lorenzana (at whose expense Arevalo?s edition of St Isidore?s works was printed). Here he provides an excellent commentary and substantial variant readings to accompany the text. Juvencus, a Spanish presbyter of noble descent, wrote in c. 330 his harmony of the four gospels in over 3000 lines of hexameter verse in a style greatly influenced by Virgil. His aim was to provide educated Christian readers with an alternative to the pagan classics. Brunet III, 636. De Backer/Sommervogel I, 532, no.4. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Plutarch was not so much focused on providing a historical account of these famous individuals as much as he was seeking to write of the type of person they were and the life in which they lived. He focuses on Alexander the Great, Romulus and Remus, Demosthenes, Cicero, Brutus, Julius Caesar, and many other important figures.

Contemporary manuscript index loosely inserted. Most plates are clean and bright, a small number with some spotting/light foxing/browning/offsetting.. Edward Donovan (1768-1837) was a natural historian and artist. He devoted his time and fortune to forming a large collection of natural history specimens and compiling a number of books on the subject, the illustrations of which were drawn and coloured by himself. 'Although the plates are not signed they were drawn and probably engraved by the author. Only a few are plain and if Donovan did not colour the remainder in all copies himself he no doubt supervised the work. … The plates in all the issues of each volume were printed from the same set of blocks.' (Lisney, p 257). Donovan's main interest was entomology. The present set of four volumes includes the plates only from his important sixteen-volume work 'British Insects' (first issued 1792-1813). This set includes a total of 574 (of 576) finely engraved plates of which 567 are hand-coloured and 7 are of microscopic organisms and are always uncoloured. The missing plates are nos 446 (Papilio brassicae) and 467 (Musca vibrans and Musca quadristrigata).Horn-Schenkling, 4949; Nissen ZBI, 1142; Lisney, pp 260-277..

[Constitutions]
Paris, 1792. Two volumes bound in one. [4],324; 317pp. Contemporary French mottled calf, spine richly gilt with red gilt morocco label, marbled endpapers. Boards slightly bowed, minor wear to joints, gouge to lower front cover. Leaves expertly washed. Very good. The first French edition of the 1787 Federal Constitution, printed with the second French edition of the constitutions of the thirteen states. The original French edition of the state constitutions was inspired by Franklin and appeared in 1783. Franklin was then ambassador to the French Court and had just completed negotiations with Great Britain for the independence of the United States. The work was translated by the Duc de la Rochefoucauld, at Franklin's suggestion, and includes over fifty footnote annotations explicating the text. This edition, publishing the Federal Constitution for the first time, also includes the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, and the treaties between the United States and France, the Low Countries, and Sweden. This 1792 edition in two volumes is significant for including the text of the Federal Constitution as well as the Bill of Rights (using the twelve amendments proposed to the first Congress, only ten of which were passed). The date of this edition of the American constitutions is significant, coming in the midst of the French Revolution, and at a point when the French revolutionaries were drafting their own constitution. This edition was probably created to aid in that project. HOWES C716. SABIN 16120. COHEN 3033 (note).

[Fyfe, Andrew]
Philadelphia: Thomas Dobson, 1792. First separate American edition. 8vo. 438, [2] pp. Full contemporary calf, leather spine label and gilt rules. The plates are folded to fit into the text, and four have tears without loss. Some wrinkling. Previous owner's bookplate on front pastedown, other ownership signatures on front endpaper. A crisp copy, in very good condition. This separate printing of the article "Anatomy" by Andrew Fyfe for the American edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica was intended by Dobson to be part of the promotional effort for his Encyclopedia. He also intended to make the latest scientific information available to those who might not wish to buy the entire Encyclopedia. A claim that here Americans had achieved "a high standard of scholarship" was flattering to national pride, but can't really be substantiated by the text, which essentially follows Fyfe's Encyclopedia Britannica original in almost every detail. Andrew Fyfe (1754-1824) was a noted professor of anatomy at Edinburgh University. An important and very scarce piece of medical Americana, probably the second to contain medical illustrations.

1792. Steel engraving. Wide margins. Good condition. Image: 10 x 14 cm ( 3.9 x 5.5 "). Ohne Titel. Partenkirchen In der Eremitage in St. Petersburg hängt das Ölgemälde, das unter dem Namen "Der Morgen" Partenkirchen darstellt. Der Maler ist Peter Heinrich Lambert Hess (1792-1871). Er wurde 1861 in den persönlichen bayerischen Adelsstand erhoben und durfte sich ab dann Ritter von Hess nennen. 1839 lud Zar Nikolaus von Hess nach St. Petersburg (und Moskau) ein. das Gemälde "Der Morgen" war aber schon 1819 in den Besitz des Zaren gelangt. Der Lithograph Friedrich Hohe (1802-1870) lithographierte das Gemälde "Der Morgen" von Peter Hess. Die vorliegende Bleistiftzeichnung ist unsigniert und undatiert. Die künstlerische Genauigkeit und Übereinstimmung mit dem Gemälde wie auch mit der Lithographie lassen den Schluss zu, dass es sich um die Vorzeichnung für beide, das Gemälde wie für die Lithographie handeln könnte. Das Papier, auf dem die Bleistiftzeichnung entstand, stammt deutlich aus dem 19. Jahrhundert. Das Blatt zeigt auf der Rückseite Spuren nicht wertmindernder, aber professionell ausgeführter Restaurierung, ein Umstand, der auf die Wertschätzung der Zeichnung eines Vorbesitzers schliessen lässt. Wir wagen keine Expertise mit einer klaren Entscheidung für die eine oder die andere Möglichkeit.

Sugawara, Hirokuni, or Ogi, Hirokuni
Edo: 1792. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. An interesting 18th century Edo woodblock-print of 'Old Sword Inscriptions.' The term 'Koto' (古刀) or 'Old Sword' is a reference to swords created between 900AD and 1596AD. These are considered the pinnacle of Japanese Sword craftsmanship. The typical sword of that period was the tachi, which were later shortened to make early Katanas. This 9-volume set from 1792 was written by Sugawara Hirokuni as a complete list of appraisals of the swords and their makers. This work is significant in its inclusion of detailed workmanship of Masamune, the greatest swordsmith of Japan, and his disciples Saeki Norishige (佐伯則重) and Gō Yoshihiro (江義弘). Hirokuni includes a beginner's guide, different classes of blade makers, blacksmithing genealogies of master and apprentice blade makers, stamps of blade makers, ancient and famous swords, and much more! This work is unique in that it is often used as the dividing line between 'koto' (old swords) and 'shinto' (new swords). Sesko in his 'Encyclopedia of Japanese Swords' writes, "the older Kokon Mei Zukushi contains written transmissions on sword appraisal of the Takeya family which were compiled for the first time in the 16th year of Keicho. The Kokon Mei Zukushi Taizen defines a more exact dividing line, namely the eight year of Keicho." This rare 1792 edition is written in a column handwritten and type format with furigana usage for easier reading. This edition contains excellent illustrations throughout of different blades and the blades engravi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Segundo Cabral de Moncada, foi esta a obra mais notável que em Portugal se publicou sobre Filosofia do Direito no final do séc. XVIII e até cerca de meados do séc. XIX. Apesar do panorama erudito e ecléctico que aí apresenta, começa já a manifestar-se com Soares Barbosa, nesta obra, uma reacção ao nacionalismo iluminista tal como este se exprimira nos Estatutos da Universidade de Coimbra (1772) e na obra de Martini: nega as teorias contratualistas a respeito da sociedade civil; a existência de um estado de natureza anterior de absoluta igualdade e liberdade; a absoluta independência da razão, assim como a existência de um princípio racional único como fonte primária de todo o Direito. Encadernações da época inteiras de pele. Tomo III com mancha de água na margem superior, mais acentuada nas primeiras folhas. sinais de trabalho de traça nas últimas folhas sem afectar o texto.

As long as ever you can." ― John Wesley A rare first edition of the 'Life of John Wesley' by Coke and Moore. Wesley was one of the most important Anglican theologians and is most remembered for helping found Methodism. Many of Wesley's doctrines contrasted Whitefield's Calvinism and promoted his theology in his evangelism and missions. Wesley was an advocate for Arminianism, which strongly opposes Calvinism. This book deals with Wesley's ministry, the society in which he worked, as well his work with Moravians in London as well as his sufferings in Georgia. It also covers Wesley's return to England and his religious conversions and the progression of religion throughout Europe. [Attributes: First Edition]

I think they got but scrumse[?] justice, yours very truly, A. Black'. The first edition of an inflammatory critique (with a strong Scottish nationalist flavour) of British imperialism, war, and corruption. by Scottish political writer and radical James Thomson Callender (1758-1803). First published in February 1792 in the Edinburgh Bee, a further seven parts were planned though never printed, nevertheless the pamphlet issues of the work became very successful, rivalling Thomas Paine's recently published Rights of Man in its radicalism. The Scottish authorities, anxious to arrest the seditious author, attempted to incriminate Callender forcing him into exile, first to Dublin, then to Philadelphia. The Society of Writers to Her Majesty's Signet is a private organisation of Scottish solicitors, dating back to 1594, and part of the College of Justice.
